FABULOUS FORUM FOR ADOPTEES (and Leroy)

A new adoptee-centered support forum is up and running and if you're not already a registered member, please link over to Advocating for Change http://afc.smfforfree2.com/index.php

Of course, some cool a-parents have joined as well as other members of the Adoption Triad which, I learned from some posters who argued (in summary) it's actually more like a beast with four legs...the fourth leg being the INDUSTRY. Which is soooo right because, somehow, adoption has evolved in concept as an institution devoted to finding good homes for children who need them to finding (and creating supply) babies for people who want them.

The well designed forum captures the complexity and range of adoptee experiences. Transracial? Gotcha (okay, okay...got carried away). Transcultural? Got that covered, too. There's also a place for Late Discovery Adoptees (and for those who survived THAT shock, I SALUTE you and am in awe of your resilience). Was finally able to ask the question: Are there any other Beaners Out There? and got some great answers. (No. It appears I am a lone Bean).

And, of course, since Joy and Addie are involved in creating the forum and those two being (spank!) refreshingly naughty adoptees...for our LINKING PLEASURE...."As If Being Adopted Wasn't Bad Enough: Crazy A-Parents!" Yes! Yes! I'm not alone! I never was! Thank you, thank you, Joy and Addie!

Hope to read you there. Especially if you're a Beaner.

Thanks Nina....I will register and hopefully see you in there. Does this mean you will likely be here less often?

Hi Leroy, No, I'll still be here, but if I'm posting any less it's because I'm trying to work on my novel more and I've realized just how time consuming and addictive blogging can be for those of us who aren't disiplined about time management!

Hey Nina,

It looks like a good forum, but I have to say I've never been a forum person. I can't quite figure out how to post, or start a thread. I sometimes read them, maybe I'll see you there.

And yes, blogging can be addictive! It was hard for me to keep up with until I started using bloglines, so I don't have to check websites over and over again.

Hey Nina...I agree that blogging can be addictive. No question about that, especially for folks who tend to lean toward addictions anyway - lol. Hope you will keep us posted on your novel and that some of us get first dibs on an autographed copy!

Well...I sent in my registration to the forum but since I am not an adoptee or an adopter, I might not be let in. I sent it in Saturday right after you posted the link but have not gotten anything back yet confirming I am "in", so I will just be an "outsider" *sigh*.

I love love love the idea of a Crazy A Parent category too. FABULOUS DAHLING! See you there!

AURELIA: Forums have always challenged me, too, but I seem to get the way this one is laid out. Haven't been on much lately as I'm trying to get some work done. Hope to see you there.

ARGH, Leroy. It's not my party but if it were you'd be an honorary adoptee!

Hi MIA...I owe you an email about your great project and haven't forgotten...just WAY behind.

Nina, I couldn't find the categories of late discovery adoptees or the one about crazy-a parents! Could you send me in the right direction... I looked int he general category, is tht where they are??

So previous month I was thinking for starting my own online marketing business and to purchase any affiliate websites I just don't know if it is better to build one myself or purchase some already turnkey affiliate marketing websites. I just visited website
[url=http://www.home-businessreviews.com/Turnkey-Affiliate-Websites.html]website affiliate[/url] and there was very interesting reviews about these websites but I still haven't decided what to do. Maybe here some people who can give some opinion about websites reviewed at that site?

Maybe memebers have opinion what are any real benefits of obtaining turnkey affiliate websites? last month I'm considering to purchase one? Can members suggest some nice forum to read some more reviews or thoughts which website can produce large profit? I found this website
[url=http://www.home-businessreviews.com/Turnkey-Affiliate-Websites.html]affiliate websites[/url] - owner told that he had superb great success using these turnkey websites. He told that he makes profits many thousands of cash each month with these websites. if you have any info feel free to post reply.
